Have a seat and we'll get your coffee. We're serving up a delicious variety of vintage, buxom babes once again! We have collected a menu of some of the most exotic dishes from the worlds of burlesque, pin-up vixens, and much more vintage pin-up and figure photography. More of the delicious Roberta Pedon plus a collection of Busty Brown and may other full-figured dames from the glory years of figure photography - the 1950's through the early 1970's. Due to the popularity of the Buxom Bar we have opened this late night diner. These pictures are a little more risqué than those of the prior site, but still maintain the vintage standards. The beauty and naivete of that era has a timeless appeal, which today's lackluster industries cannot capture. Aside from the allure of the women themselves, there is the mystery in the photos. Many of these women are dead by now, but one cannot help but wonder "what they were like". Well, we'll probably never know that, but check the menu and dream.

A pin-up girl or pin-up model is a model whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as pop culture. Pin-ups are intended for informal display. Pin-up girls are glamour models, fashion models, and actresses.
Pin-up may also refer to drawings, paintings and other illustrations done in emulation of these photos (see the List of pinup artists). The term was first attested to in English in 1941; however the practice is documented back at least to the 1890s. The pin up images could be cut out of magazines or newspapers, or be from postcard or chromo-lithographs, and so on. Such photos often appear on calendars, which are meant to be pinned up anyway. Later, posters of pin-up girls were mass-produced.
Many pin ups were photographs of celebrities who were considered sex symbols. One of the most popular early pin-up girls was Betty Grable. Her poster was ubiquitous in the lockers of G.I.s during World War II. Other pin-ups were artwork, often depicting idealized versions of what some thought a particularly beautiful or attractive woman should look like. An early example of the latter type was the Gibson girl, drawn by Charles Dana Gibson. The genre also gave rise to several well-known artists specializing in the field, including Alberto Vargas and George Petty, and numerous lesser artists such as Art Frahm.
The term "cheesecake" is synonymous with pin-up photo. The earliest documented print usage of this sense of cheesecake is in 1934 , predating pin-up, although anecdotes say the phrase was in spoken slang some 20 years earlier, originally in the phrase (said of a pretty woman) "better than cheesecake." In the 1950s, for example, there was a magazine called Cheesecake that had a young Marilyn Monroe in a yellow bikini on its cover in 1953
Due to her extremely large breasts, Pedon's photographs frequently appeared in men's magazines that catered to breast fetishes. The earliest verifiable publication of her modeling photos was in a men's magazine called "The Swinger", in the February 1974 edition (which would have gone to press the prior November.) She dressed and then undressed as a hippie during most of her photo shoots
Sources vary as the age Samples started her modeling career: they range from her late teens until about age 28. According to her website, Samples was approached while in Marina Del Rey, California to do pin-up modeling. During the course of the 1960s she appeared in numerous black & white magazines in "cheesecake" poses.
Over the years Samples performed as an exotic dancer. She appeared in numerous men's soft-core publications including Juggs, Gent, Gem, and D-Cup. From 1986 through August 2007 she had a monthly column in Juggs Magazine. She moved into adult films in 1970, appearing in Convict's Women and Love Boccacio Style, both produced by Something Weird Video. Samples appeared in several movies with infamous male adult star John Holmes. She also appeared in movies with two other big bust superstars of the time, Uschi Digard and Francesca "Kitten" Natividad.
"When I turned 21, I knew my breasts would turn out to be something special...and they've been pretty special ever since," she was once quoted as saying.
Russ Meyer (photographer, cult film maker, and patron saint of dirty old men) had a knack at finding women with large...uh...talents. Case in point, California burlesque cutie Virginia "Ding-Dong" Bell. In the era of buxom bombshells like June Wilkinson and Jayne Mansfield and other big-named strippers like Tempest Storm, Bell is the mountain among the molehills. Packing a 48-24-36 figure into a five-foot-two-inch (!) frame, Bell really but the "bump" in bump and grind. Even though her career was short, she sure made an impact into the glamour/pin-up culture. And impact that lives on today. It seems she has as many fans now as she did during the height of her career over forty years ago.
Most of her famous pictorials, done by Meyer, basically show Bell doing her dance routine...which shouldn't be seen by anyone with a heart condition. In fact, it's hard to open a men's magazine from the late 1950's and not find a photo of the buxom miss Bell. Besides her famous pictorials, Bell also appeared in many film loops including the famous 1964 nudie-cutie flick "Bell, Bare and Beautiful."
